Kolumne: Thomas Adcock: Trump’s „Fourth Reich“

SEBASTIAN GORKA, high-level White House assistant to Donald Trump, wore his Hungarian “bocskai” to the January 20 presidential inauguration balls in Washington. The braided black tunic  is popular with modern-day acolytes of Miklós Horthy, the nazi collaborationist leader whose Budapest regime saw the murders of 600,000 Jews. A medal pinned to Mr. Gorka’s tunic (close-up at right) indicates his affection for the “Order of Vitéz,” a chivalric fraternity begun by Horthy in 1920, popular once again with members of Hungary’s ultra-right political movement—the Jobbik Magyarországért Mozgalom. At the January balls,Read More

Wer hat Angst vorm Schwarzen Mann? Von „Black Lives Matter“ führt der Weg auch zu Black Comics, gegen das rassistische weiße Amerika gab es schon einmal reale „Black Panther“-Power.  In einer (bisher) auf zwölf Bände angelegten Comic-Serie interpretiert gerade der politische Publizist Ta-Nehisi Coates einen schwarzen Superhelden neu. Ein aufregendes Unterfangen, findet Alf Mayer, der sich an ein Zitat von James Baldwin erinnert fühlt: „In den Vereinigten Staaten werden Gewalttätigkeit und Heldentum gleichgesetzt, wenn es nicht um Schwarze geht.“ Wir leben in zwei großen Erzählungen, mindestens, lautet kurz gesagt Georg Seeßlens These,Read More

Klassiker-Check: George Orwell

FAKE NEWS, DOUBLE THINK UND NEWS SPEAK: ORWELLS KAMPFANSAGE AN VULGÄR-FASCHISTOIDE VERDUMMUNGSSTRATEGIEN Dass man George Orwells Romane „1984“ und „Animal Farm“ im „Orwell-Jahr“ als Schul-Lektüre las und seine Warnungen vor einem diktatorischen Überwachungsstaat intensiv diskutierte, ist nachvollziehbar. Nun scheint die Wut auf eine chauvinistische, vulgär-radikale Trump-Rhetorik einen neuen Orwell-Boom ausgelöst zu haben: Double-Speak, „Alternative Fakten“, ein mit dreisten Lügen operierender Propagandafeldzug: All diese Versatzstücke aus Trumps Horror-Ideologie erinnern an Orwells düstere „1984“-Dystopie. In den USA und hierzulande sind Orwell-Titel wieder auf den Beststellerlisten vertreten, aber auch Romane wie Philip K.Read More

Georg Seeßlen: Trump! POPulismus als Politik

Der Volksheld als Medienfigur – von Georg Seeßlen. Das ist schon immer seine Stärke gewesen, wie Georg Seeßlen die Populärkultur und ihre Bilder, Mythen, Verbiegungen, Träume und Versprechungen zu analysieren und verknüpfen versteht. Gäbe es jemanden, der ihn noch nie gelesen hat, wäre dieses schmale, pralle Buch eine idealtypische Empfehlung. 140 Seiten lesbare, erkenntnisreiche Lektüre – viel mehr muss man über Trump nicht sagen und nicht wissen. (Natürlich doch, wir empfehlen auch ausdrücklich our own Thomas Adcock nebenan.) Georg Seeßlen analysiert in seinem neuen, aktuellen Buch Donald Trump als Produkt derRead More

Buch der Stunde Richard Condons Bestseller „Botschafter der Angst“ (The Manchurian Candidate) von 1959 – von Alf Mayer. Unvorstellbar wäre noch vor zwanzig Jahren gewesen, wie gerade in diesen Wochen sämtliche Archetypen des Kalten Krieges auf den Kopf gestellt werden, wie ausgerechnet die US-Partei der Kommunistenfurcht im Namen der internationalen Geschäftsmacherei jahrzehntelang gepflegte Feindbilder weghext. Noch nie hat sich ein Politiker so offen – und folgenlos – dem Verdacht ausgesetzt, unter dem Einfluss einer fremden Macht zu stehen, wie der vollkommen schamlose Donald Trump das gerade tut. Ein “nützlicher Idiot” (полезныеRead More

Why My East Texas Neighbors are Voting for Trump It’s not because they’re stupid rednecks. Joe R. Lansdale Voting for Trump is about being part of a large reality show. Really. The general view of the non-Trump supporter is that those who have chosen to vote for him are rednecks with 12 teeth, six of them in their coat pocket, and it’s possible those teeth might be on loan from someone else. The majority of these Trump supporters are listed primarily as White Uneducated Voters, which is code for “stupidRead More
